Jailed for Yawning

Clifton Williams can now yawn and stretch in freedom once again. Williams, 33, was jailed last month by Judge Daniel Rozak for contempt of court. For yawning.
Williams (pictured), was released after serving 21 days of a potential six month sentence.
Said the judge, "I just first of all want to make it clear: You were never in custody for yawning, you never were. It was a sound ... that was offensive to the court."
Said Williams father, Clifton Williams Sr.,"I've heard of people getting less time and they're dealing drugs or shot somebody."
Methinks Mr. Williams Sr. may have a point.
